When I was a teacher, I took getting dressed pretty seriously. I could not sleep if I hadn’t tried on and laid out the next day’s outfit (including accessories). Yes, I know this is abnormal and slightly crazy, but if you are a young teacher and want to look unique, fun and, above all, professional, it takes a little bit of work!
Nowadays, I find myself wearing outfits that are much more free and easy. Literally, pretty much free. Today’s outfit consists of almost entirely thrift store and flea market pieces:
t-shirt: flea market, similar ones at gap
skirt: vintage, thrifted
bracelets and earrings: accumulated over years of flea market trips
shoes: target, on sale last year
The whole thing couldn’t have cost more than $34.
And the bag, THE BAG! It’s the first piece I made as part of a new project in collaboration with my dad, who makes children’s shoes. I’m hoping to launch a new etsy shop this fall, and the idea of having both a vintage shop and a handmade one is definitely exciting.
